Additional Resources for LGBTQ+ Families
The Queerspawn Resource Project provides education about people with one or more LGBTQ+ parents/guardians and their identities, histories, and needs, broadening communal and organizational support for COLAGErs, and increasing access to resources that validate their experiences —particularly those that are often misunderstood, dismissed, or silenced. The Queerspawn Resource Project works to construct more spaces where people with LGBTQIA+ parents/caregivers and their perspectives are welcomed and valued.
